DOSBox is a great way to replay old games but it can be a little difficult to use at times. Sadly D-Fend is no longer available but the DBGL (DOSBox Games Loader) is an excellent replacement.

It is written in Java, so before going any further you should download and install the Java Runtime Environment. Although this may be frustrating the advantage is that DBGL can run on Mac OS X and Linux, not just Windows.

The Download includes 11 classic DOS games including Wolfenstein 3D and Beneath a Steel Sky.
